Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Private Placement of Common Stock
 
On May 22, 2020, the Company entered into securities purchase agreements (the “Purchase Agreements”) with the accredited investors identified on Exhibit 10.3 hereof (the “Investors”) for the sale of an aggregate of 1,378,716 shares (“Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, at a price of $0.35 per share for aggregate proceeds of $482,550. The Purchase Agreements also provide the Investors with a contingent payment right whereby the Company will pay each Investor an allocated portion of the Company’s net proceeds from its patent claims, after taking into account fees and expenses payable to law firms representing the Company and amounts payable to the Company’s litigation financer. The Investor’s allocated portion of such net proceeds will be determined by multiplying (i) the net proceeds recovered by the Company up to $10 million by (ii) the quotient of such Investor’s subscription amount divided by $10 million, up to an amount equal to each Investor’s subscription amount (“Contingent Payment”). The Purchase Agreements also contain customary representations and warranties of the Investors. The proceeds from the sale of the Shares will be used to fund the Company’s operations, including litigation expenses.
 
The Company also entered into registration rights agreements (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Investors pursuant to which the Company will register the Shares. The Company has committed to file the registration statement by the 60th calendar day following the closing date and to cause the registration statement to become effective by the 120th calendar day following the closing date. The Registration Rights Agreement provides for liquidated damages upon the occurrence of certain events including failure by the Company to file the registration statement or cause it to become effective by the deadlines set forth above. The amount of the liquidated damages is 1.0% of the aggregate subscription upon the occurrence of the event, and monthly thereafter, up to a maximum of 6%.
 
The Shares were offered and sold to the Investors on a private placement basis under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder.
 
The foregoing summaries of the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the agreements, which are attached as part of Exhibits 10.1 through 10.2 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.
